If you missed the release of the maxi-single “Glimmer” a couple weeks ago, you may have missed a bit of the background about this great band. Based out of Malmö, Sweden, they’ve been together for about six years now. In that time, they’ve released a couple incredible EPs on the Swedish netlabel Go, Jukebox! and performed live, on and off, in the Malmö region. From the beginning, they’ve put together a mixture of influences and ideas, however, they’re still trying to find their inte...

It all started sometime last year with a friend of mine, Rob Pitt, saying that he’d love it if there were a “minimal” netBloc release. However, with the netBloc series being about variety, I felt that I couldn’t release something so narrowly focused on one sub-genre. If I were to put together something remotely like that, it had to be something more varied. I decided to begin slowly pulling together instrumental netaudio gems as I came across them while developing other n...

According to Chinese philosophy two opposing forces, the yin and the yang, co-exist interdependently to make up universal existence. You cannot have one without the other. So it seems in many aspects of life that you cannot have the good without the bad and vice-versa. Life, death, love, hate, peace, war all intermingled in equilibrium. Would we be able to recognize peace without war? War without peace? Would we recognize the gloriousness of a thriving, new alternative community of music based o...

This was a release that I hoped to have ready in time for the holidays and was to be a holiday gift.

At least a concept in as much as a compilation can be a concept. There’s an overlying theme... that of the Moon. There’s a loosely tied narrative that is held together through the use of public domain texts, video and C...

It’s always exciting when I come across an artist who delivers an album that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. It’s even more enjoyable when that artist is completely independent. There’s something to be said for music independence in these days of packaged and repackaged mainstream music product. Independent music isn’t held back by labels and expectations to fit a certain mold. When I first heard Ant’s “Fly”, I was very impressed by the fact that it had that classic hip-hop v...
